The Company is good to work for.
Security Guard Officer (Former Employee), Tukwila, WAMay 7, 2015
For the most part we all worked well as a team.
helping each other to get the job done as needed
and covering shifts when someone could not work for some personal reason.
Helping each other creates a pleasant work environment.
I am thankful to the manager for keeping me with a job as they were able for 14 years.

This place is a wreck I cannot recommend this company for anyone. I feel sorry for the people that still work there. Management is terrible and incompetent.

better than the last one
Upscale Security Officer (Current Employee), Miami, FLMay 3, 2015
Pros: relax good post
Cons: policy changes every 2 weeks
Get to post and there is nothing to do other than look at this green wall and stair at the computer screen cause they don't want you on the internet, if ask for days off you might get them or your schedule might change all the way around

Great Benefits, but job is very tough and challenging
Youth Care Worker- Transporter (Current Employee), Tampa, FLApril 29, 2015
Love the job for it's great benefits. But the job is very challenging, new employees come and go once they have figured out what the job entails. Always in overtime because of being short-staffed.

Terrible work enviroment, union, and management
Armed Security Guard (Former Employee), Radford, VAApril 22, 2015
Pros: Decent Pay
Cons: No breaks. Poor Healthcare, Unpredictable hours and schedules
Go in at a certain time but never know if you will leave on time. Co workers are full of drama. Rules only apply to the ones who are not in with management. Management only cares if positions are fill. not if employees are ok mentally and physically. Management could care less whether you get 8 hours of sleep before next shift. Has no compassion for employees or their families. Benefits were terrible and outrageously priced. The hardest part of the job was staying awake for 8+ hours with nothing to stimulate the brain. No electronics were allowed and even got in trouble for reading at times. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people who work inside the plant. They tried to make sure the guards were taken care of.

Great Company
Security Officer (Former Employee), Tobaccoville NCApril 22, 2015
I really enjoyed my job just not the fact that I would have to work all 3 shifts. With kids that is very hard to do. I also did not like the fact that it was hard to advance within the company. They would hire outside people instead of promoting from within.

Security Guard (Former Employee), Columbia, SCApril 14, 2015
Pros: N/A
Cons: N/A
I wasn't able to remain within the company for long because my position was only temporary (holiday help). So I can't say much other than what I've witnessed and honestly, it wasn't that bad. Plain and simple. Not bad at all. Great place to start if you want to get into the security field.

Security Officer (Current Employee), Flint, MIApril 11, 2015
Its a good job unless your trying to go to school. They don't really work with you if you in school and working. The hours are good if your only working and not doing something else that affects work.

As a people person I find that people put a smile on my face and loving your job gives your best performance.
Unemployed Security Guard (Former Employee), Richmond, KYApril 10, 2015
The most enjoyable part of my job was being the best that I can be. When being a security guard you never know what will happen that day so its a challenge and heartwarming to help people. There is a lot of routine work as most jobs but the feeling of accomplishment is worth it all.
